You might recognize the number - 24601 - as being that of the prisoner Jean Valjean from the play, Les Miserables.  Last night, my dear, sweet wife and I saw the student version of the play at Theater Works of Peoria.  We love the play having seen it the first time on the stage in London in 2004.  But our main reason for attending last night was to see one of our young LICL members, Jack Miller.

Jack is in 11th grade at Centennial High School.  He was bit with the acting bug a couple of years ago and had participated in a couple of school plays.  In Les Miz he was part of the ensemble cast and he did an outstanding job.

In some ways it must be fun to be part of the ensemble.  Throughout the two and a half hours Jack played a variety of characters and had a number of costume changes.  He seemed quite at ease on the stage.  I can see him doing more work and honing his craft.  Bravo, Jack, for a job well done!

Join us this weekend for worship.  My little group will provide the music for both the 5 pm Saturday service and both services on Sunday (8 am and 10:45 am).  I'll also preach on Sunday - my sermon title, "Let It Fly."  Come and join us this weekend at LICL!
